Senior and juniors Amis Velo cyclocrossThe Sunday before last we went to Colchester to see a cyclocross.  There were no water crossings, a motorsport type starting grid, perhaps no more than four dismounts and the course was sufficiently flat and dry there were several trains running early on but there were also six different races to cover all classes and BOGOF filled rolls because of overly optimistic catering.

Tonight in the Laxfield village hall is the last performance of Common Ground's 2015 tour of The Count of Monte Cristo.

Tomorrow lunchtime is Bucklesham Plough Day ... we recognised the name but had to look it up, Bucklesham is just off the A12 near the junction with the A14.

Skippy the AngerooThe Saturday before last we went to the UEA Norwich to see roller derby.  There were no equipment checks, one minute penalties, minor penalties or tutus but there was free cake and some fine derby from both Norfolk Brawds teams and the Nottingham Roller Girls.

Elvis and Bill BlackAnorak Alert 16:  On Radio 4 Mitch Benn reckoned original Elvis' bass player Bill Black was part of the 1968 comeback tv special, would have been quite a trick as Bill Black had died three years earlier.

Synesthesia at Asylum Studios RendleshamFriday night we went to the private view of two young local artists at Asylum Studios Bentwaters Rendlesham but unfortunately it had been last month.  We should have worked this out as we knew Synesthesia in honor of Rob Quin was running at the studios until the 27th (by appointment).

Earlier this afternoon a rider died at the motocross in Blaxhall.
